I got a quick response from Chris Butler, which included the text of the email IA received. Optimum Releasing Limited didn't say how copyright was infringed, just that it was, in their cease and desist request.

According to Video-Cellar, copyrights on British films released before 1945 only lasted 50 years.

I cannot find a U.S. renewal for Bulldog Drummond at Bay (1937).

Yeah. Video-Cellar had said that The Farmer's Wife and Bulldog Drummond at Bay were PD. I wish I knew the basis of Optimum Releasing Limited's claim.

I wonder if there's confusion with these films: The Farmer's Wife and Bulldog Drummond at Bay, or perhaps others.
